Are there! I've just compiled lesstif from the 0.83 archive on ftp.netbsd.org.
There are dozens of pointer<->integer warnings, dozens of "unused variable"
warnings (even excusing the rcsid defined, but not used warnings), and
a couple of other minor warnings.
The first few pointer<->integer warnings involve computing hash table
entries based partially on the address of the Widget. We could make these
go away if we used a long for the index table hash entry
The 0.82 archive from ftp.lesstif.org didn't compile at all. It failed on
../../include/Motif-1.2/Xm/RCUtilsP.h:3: character constant too long.
